Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology utilizes minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system . These procedures can often replace open surgical procedures and are generally easier for the patient because they involve no large incisions, less risk, less pain, and shorter recovery times.

Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy imaging is used in the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions. Fluoroscopy uses X-ray to produce images in real time. Your physician’s office will schedule a fluoroscopic examination for you by calling the MSU Department of Radiology.

Before Your Exam

Your exam may require special dietary instructions, which will be explained to you when your appointment is scheduled. Please remember to carefully follow all special instructions you receive.

It is important to inform the technologist:

  • if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant
  • if you are diabetic
  • if you have special food or medication needs during the time of your exam

During Your Exam

A technologist will explain how the exam will be performed and answer any questions you may have concerning your scheduled procedure. To assist in achieving the best possible examination results, the technologist will give you specific instructions regarding breathing and positioning your body during the exam.

After Your Exam

Your exam will be viewed by a radiologist (a physician who specializes in diagnostic imaging). The results of your exam will be sent to your referring physician.
